HD-Vinyl 24/96 (RCA) Ludwig van Beethoven – The 5 Piano Concerti (Rubinstein/Leinsdorf)

No one has quite the presence and panache and mastery of line of the wonderful Artur Rubinstein. And his piano sound is very distinctive and refreshing in spite of the age of his recordings. He has a way of holding one’s interest and delight through the special quality of understanding the drama of all he plays. “Rubinstein,” a prominent conductor once quipped, “is the only pianist you could wake up at midnight and ask to play any of the 38 major piano concertos.” Hyperbole aside, Rubinstein was indeed one of the most versatile and commanding of all virtuosos, and he left a series of recordings for piano and orchestra that are still big sellers decades later. These recordings, made in 1965-67, demonstrate Rubinstein was just as “on top” of these works technically as he was in the earlier set with Krips (1956) and much more “into” them musically. In addition, the playing is notably more alert and straightforward than in his later set with Barenboim (1975).
